A swoony, speculative and entirely electric YA debut with a humorous and satirical take on the conventions of the superhero-verse, for fans of Michelle Quach’s Not Here To Be Liked and the Marvel Universe.

Seventeen-year-old Jenna Ray has just been saved by the world’s newest superhero, Blaze. And, in the eyes of the public, that means one thing: Jenna Ray has been cast as the Love Interest.

No. Not happening. Not if Jenna has anything to say about it (even if Blaze is actually quite sweet and cute).

Reviews for The Love Interest

I love this book! So original and witty and such assured writing that crackles as much as it shines. The characters are super in more ways than one. Helen Comerford is a writer to watch * CJ Skurse, author of the Sweetpea series *
